Former UL Football Star Kyries Hebert Has Best Pro Season Yet
A former member of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajun football team just completed his most successful professional season yet, at an age most players would be retired.
Former UL standout Kyries Hebert just completed his sixth-consecutive season with the Montreal Alouettes, including 11th season in the Canadian Football League, putting together a career-season.
The now 37-year old Hebert compiled 110 tackles for Montreal this past season, to go along with two sacks and an interception.
A former prep standout at Eunice High School, Hebert played for the Cajuns from 1999-2001, leading the team in tackles from his safety position in each season.
After being released by the Minnesota Vikings and Houston Texans, Hebert moved north of the border for the first time, playing two seasons for the Ottawa Renegades, and two more for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers,, before coming back to the U.S. and joining the Cincinnati Bengals for the 2008 and 2009 seasons, where he accumulated 57 tackles.
After being released by the Bengals, Hebert played briefly for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, before joining the Alouettes in 2012.
A 2012 All-Star at the safety position, Hebert has since been moved to linebacker.
In 2013, Hebert was the recipient of the prestigious Tom Pate Memorial Award for the player who demonstrates "outstanding sportsmanship and someone who has made a significant contribution to his team, his community and Association."
Hebert just continues to get better and better, so there's no reason to believe he won't be a standout next year in the CFL once again.
